4.35/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with some reddish hues when held to light. Produces loads of thick tan head that stays at around a finger and doesn't go anywhere, good lacing.

S- Dark fruits and yeast are big here, lots of plums, dates and figs and some spice.

T- A perfect blend of spice, sweet dark fruits, bready, thick malts, and sweet rum-like alcohol. The flavor is dark, warm and inviting. There's something hidden in there that almost reminds me of a wheat beer, with banana esters and cloves. Layer after layer of complexity on this one.

M- Full bodied with medium carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel.

O- A truly outstanding Belgian style ale. The flavors are just incredible, it gives some of the best abbey beers a run for their money.
